Wait List
The Steamship Authority’s vehicle reservation wait list utilizes a computerized search for space based on cancellations or changes. Requests are honored on a first-come, first-served basis, and changes are updated automatically. The wait list system continues to check up to up until the date you want to travel. If your plans change, it is important to cancel your wait list request to avoid any unwanted changes or charges.

When you sign up for a wait list reservation, you’ll receive a wait list confirmation with the dates and times you have requested. Please check this information carefully for accuracy.

If your wait list reservation time becomes available more than one week in advance of your trip, we will notify you by email or mail, whichever you have specified at the time of your reservation. Wait list reservation matches made less than a week from your travel date will be confirmed by email and telephone. (Please be sure that you have provided us with all necessary contact information.) Wait list reservation updates can also be viewed on our Online Vehicle Reservation Site.

Wait list matches (one-way or round-trip) are subject to all cancellation and change policies. If you’ve requested a wait list reservation, you should check your final reservation by online or by phone 24 hours ahead of your travel date, in case we have been unable to reach you to confirm your changes.

Unaccompanied Vehicle Drive-On/Drive-Off Service
Unaccompanied Vehicle Drive-On/Drive-Off Service is available between Hyannis and Nantucket. You can use this service to transport your vehicle if you have not been able to obtain a reservation for your desired travel time. Passengers may either use our traditional ferries with a sailing time of 2 hours and 15 minutes or use our high-speed passenger-only ferry with a sailing time of 1 hour.
